Hello and thanks for stopping by!

That is not me in this picture either, but it sure is how I felt when I cut the gluten out of my life! mohamed-nohassi-739370-unsplash

I am a Southwestern wife and mother of two adult children.    I love the color pink and fresh-baked bread (gluten-free of course) hot out of the oven with butter. I love fall when the weather is just cool enough for a sweatshirt at night and maybe sometimes in the day when you are not in the sun. I like just about anything sweet…..well let’s be real…..anything chocolate!

I LOVE anything to do with football, in particular, my CHICAGO BEARS. And no I didn’t just get on the bandwagon, I am a lifelong Bear fan! 😉

I like animals, well-behaved ones anyway. Same goes for kids. I am not a huge fan of other people’s kids. I am an old school parent that believes in discipline and guidance. Too many parents nowadays let their kids run the show and that drives me crazy. Well, would ya listen to me? I sound just like my mom did! Jeeze! Maybe she did know a thing or two!!

I have totally enjoyed my life with my hubby and kids but now as empty nesters, we are exploring a whole new world!

Back to the reason for this website……….I have been gluten-free since the fall of 2010.  If you are wondering why I made this choice, please check out the “About Me” section.

I am sharing basic gluten-free information, recipes, product reviews, interesting books, websites, other blogs and my general thoughts on this ever-growing topic.  Please check out the “Recipes & Info” section where you will find all of this, including useful links, categories and search to help you find exactly what you are looking for.  🙂

Follow me on Facebook and Twitter where you will have access to these posts AND additional postings of recipes and other interesting information.  You can “like” or “follow” either of these on my “blog” page!

Your feedback is always welcome and if any of this has helped you, please share my blog with others!cropped-gluten-free-logo-2-large-white-background2.png

Also – I am more than happy to test and review your gluten-free product!  In my reviews, I will always try to remain neutral and informative.  But most of all I will be truthful – good or bad!  Contact me below if you have a product you would like for me to review.

Gluten Free Nicole!

        I was recently given this book by my cealic mother-in-law, and I am so grateful. My sister and I are both cealics, and desserts like cake and cookies have been missing from our lives for years. (I mean, REAL cakes and cookies that taste like their gluten-laiden counterparts.) From the very first recipe we tried- frosted macadamia nut bars (p.145) to my 25th birthday treat- whoopie pies (p.118), my entire family has devoured the outcomes. Including those who can eat wheat. This book explains evey detail about gluten-free flours, right down to thier protein contents, and how and why they work. This is an absolute must for anyone who wants to enter back into the realm of heavenly desserts, or anyone catering to their beloved cealic. Just be prepared to stock your shelves with a bunch of new flours, and you’ll be on your way!

  8. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but
    I find this matter to be actually something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of
